Received my Sebo vacuum over two weeks ago and am very impressed. It is very well designed, powerful but quiet, lightweight and manoeuvrable and comes with a excellent tools. The power head is great for picking up hair from carpets, it works just like an upright vacuum but is much easier to control. There is a good length cord and the automatic rewind is smooth and fast. My favourite feature is the power control on the handle. I've searched hard to find a negative point but there isn't really one except maybe the that fact that the hose can twist up (doesn't swivel where it is attached to the body - probably due to power supply to hose) but this is easily avoided once you get used to it.
